Port gantry crane is an inseparable part of quayside to carry out various lifting tasks. It is widely used to load and unload containers from ships as well as handle cargoes and stacks of containers at container terminals. With development of container ships, this dockside gantry crane is required a higher efficiency and greater capacity so that it is capable of handling large container vessels. According to different ways it moves, the port gantry cranes can be classified into rail mounted and rubber tyred type, and each type is built for a specific use.
We supply a variety of port gantry cranes to meet your different lifting applications. As a special lifting equipment, the port crane usually has great lifting speed and high working level, and it greatly increases productivity and reduces dwell time at dockside.
Port gantry crane parameters:
- Load capacity: 30-50t
- Span: 18-35m
- Lifting height: 12.3-21m
- Lifting speed: 9.2-12.5m/min
- Trolley running speed: 45-56m/min
- Crane running speed: 42-50m/min
- Work duty: A6-A8
Different Uses of Port Gantry Crane
Port gantry crane provides highly efficient handling of containers from medium to largest size. This container port gantry crane comes in different types and sizes for various lifting purposes. We provide two main port gantry cranes to serve your wide range of applications.
- Rail mounted gantry crane
The rail mounted crane is the most commonly used type at dockside to lift and move heavy goods, which is also called RMG crane for short. It can also serve as a ship to shore gantry crane to load and unload intermodal containers from vessels. It usually travels along two rails and lifts a single container at once. However, some advanced port cranes are able to handle two or more containers at once. Unlike typical gantry crane, the rail mounted container gantry crane is equipped with a specialized spreader which utilizes a locking mechanism to lock onto four corners of the containers to realize a safe and stable operation.
The rail mounted type gantry crane has significantly accelerated the operations at ports with plenty of benefits such as little maintenance of electric spreaders, high durability, less positioning time and excellent performance.
- Rubber tyred gantry crane
Rubber tired gantry crane, also known as RTG crane, is employed to lift and move heavy cargoes such as containers and stack them in the storage yards. It can pile up containers three-to-four high and six wide so as to save much space. The portable gantry lifting system provides a much more convenient movement in contrast to rail mounted type, making it increasingly popular at ports and container terminals.
At present, most of container port rubber tyred gantry crane is powered by diesel engines, which requires large energy and maintenance costs, so the electric portable gantry crane is getting more popular among users. The RTG container crane is usually equipped with many protection devices to ensure a secure operation such as anti-swaying system, overload limiter and anti-collision system.
